Transcript for Another Plane Makes Emergency Landing Over Reclining Seat
We begin with a new fight in the skies. Word overnight that yet another airline has been forced to make an emergency landing because of passengers fighting over a reclining seat. ABC's David Kerley has all the details. Reporter: This is the third incident in a little more than a week where reclining seat disputes have led to a flight being diverted. This was from New York to palm beach which made a stop in Jacksonville, Florida. A woman knitting decided to recline her seat. A woman behind her was trying to sleep and she had her head on the tray table. According to passengers she started screaming and swearing. A flight attendant approached and try to calm the situation but one passenger said it got worse with the woman demanding the plane be put down now. The plane landed and the woman was removed. She was just going nuts. She was like I lost a dog, I lost two dogs in the last month and I want her off or I'm going to leave. I want to you stop the plane. Reporter: Now, the two other incidents involved a seat that reclined and one that didn't. A man used a pair of these to keep it from reclining. The woman threw a cup of water. That flight diverted and they were both taken off the plane. Amy, in one of these cases federal charges have been filed. All right. David Kerley, thank you so much.
